1864 School Dress for 18" doll

If you love lots of details in your garments, this pattern is for you. I used over 4 yards of lace, which meant a lot of measuring. The bodice lining did not want to fit smoothly, but after a bit of a struggle, I got it fixed. Generally, I was pretty happy with how the dress turned out.

I found the shoulders need

I found the shoulders need wider and the sleeves bigger in the arms. The dress is pretty but I wonder if the seams need to be topped stitched. May try it to see how it looks.

So Cute!

All the wow factor of this dress is in the details. Because of those details, it does take a while to make this dress. It took me at least 8 hours from cutting to final Velcro. Here is the link to my pictures of the dress: http://sewbeading.wordpress.com/2014/06/04/lacy-finery-heritage-doll-fashion-harriets-yellow-dress/

Another great historic design

I enjoyed sewing this dress with the exception of creating the ruching sections on the bodice. I needed more than a single gathering thread to stabilize them while applying the lace. That bit of trickiness aside, the dress looks fabulous when complete.
